Holy heck! This new Reno Rumble TV show is just too much!
We were on the edge of our seats tonight as the Reno Rumble Week 1 full house reveals were unveiled. And we NEVER could have imagined those shock results! Absolutely gutted our fav couple Michael and Carlene got sent home tonight 🙁
So how on earth did the Blue team catch up to the Red team with a 9 point lead mid week? Let’s check it out…
Remember this week this team’s brief is contemporary coastal. During the week the bedrooms were revealed and two couples nailed the brief while two fell short, seeing the team finish on 61 out of 80. You can see those bedrooms here.
Michelle and Steve
Michelle’s own home is styled in contemporary coastal so this was an easy brief for her. Their living room impressed the judges and saw them score 18 out of 20! We love the timber shelves, raked ceiling and warmth in their living room.
Chris and Nick
These boys may have only scored 15 1/2 for their kitchen and sitting area but we were certainly impressed with their space! The matt grey kitchen benchtop, tempered mirror splashback, and statement fireplace were just some of the highlights for us.
Ben and Jemma
Talk about stepping it up! Ben and Jemma were criticised for not hitting the brief in their guest bedroom — we disagreed with the judging but it left them tied in last place. Tonight they delivered the most beautiful coastal dining area and gained them a score of 17 1/2 out of 20!
Carly and Leighton
After all their chandelier drama during the week, Carly stuck with her guns and used the black Haus beaded chandelier and got big ticks from the judges for it. Free standing bath on an angle under the window and generous shower also impressed the judges, seeing them score 17 out of 20.
All up this week the Blue team finished on 129 out of 160 and all four couples were safe from elimination!
Team captains Josh and Jenna did a great job of setting the direction of the house this week. All couples worked well together to renovate the house in the ‘contemporary classic’ design style and mid week this team scored 70 out of 80, 9 points ahead of the Blue team.
Josh and Jenna
This living room blew the judges away! The integrated TV, luxe furniture and decor, and spacious room layout saw them get a near perfect score of 19 out of 20. We especially loved their colour palette and choice of artwork.
Jess and Ayden
Feeling super confident with their kitchen this week, Jess and Ayden were shocked when the judges said they were being ‘greedy’ with the space. The kitchen was so large, it left little space for Kyal and Kara’s dining room which the judges called a fail. In terms of kitchens though, this one is pretty stunning and we especially loved the bifold window, matt black hardware and cabinet colour.
Kyal and Kara
This team were thanking their lucky stars they had immunity as the comments about their dining area were read out. Darren said it was the meanest dining table he’s ever seen in a house this size, and the longer he sat in the dining area the worse it got. While it’s not the most practical table for a family of four, it is a beautiful space and meets the brief of ‘contemporary classic’.
Michael and Carlene
Excuse us while we wipe away our tears! Cannot believe our fav couple already got sent home 🙁 Faced with a tricky space, they delivered a beautiful bathroom that felt light and airy. The judges immediately loved those geometric floor tiles but felt the vanity should have been larger and the basin could have been under-mount to maximise bench space. Lots of people shared our heartache on Twitter about the shock exit of these two!
